The Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights are mesmerizing, dynamic displays of light that appear in the nighttime Arctic skies. They are, in effect, nature's light show; visual poetry penned from the quantum leaps of atmospheric gases.
So what is it like in Lofoten during the winter? Darkness and stormy weather? Yes, that too, something which in itself can be an exhilarating experience – also for those who are not
use to such conditions.
Welcome to killer whale and sea eagle safaris based in the Lofoten Islands, North Norway. In these fantastic surroundings, you have the opportunity to see one of the
most breathtaking experiences - a close encounter with the killer whales!
WELCOME TO THE FISHING VILLAGE AND MUSEUM TOWN OF Å - and to Å Rorbuer.
When in Å, you can stay in old-quaint old fisherman's "rorbu" cabins that have been adapted to meet today's demands on comfort and hygiene. Other overnight accommodations include rooms above the Brygga restaurant, the traditional quayside buildings or the youth hostel.
Å is the perfect place for groups, courses, conferences and individual holidaymakers. We can provide overnight accommodation and serve meals for up to 300 people.
"Brygga Restaurant" offers home-made specialities from Lofoten, is fully licensed, and has been adapted to suit groups of all sizes. Bekkhaugen Cafe is open during the daytime and serves snacks and home-made cakes.
